Welcome to “Police with a Purpose”

In Matthew, the Bible says that “For many are called but few are chosen. ” At a young age, I knew God placed a call on me to serve my country and community; but at that time I did not know exactly in what capacity I would be serving. I contemplated the military, firefighting and even the medical profession, but something down deep inside me wanted to wear the badge and fight crime.

Out of all my friends and family I often still wonder why God not only called me, but chose me to be a police officer. I feel honored and proud, with a Godly pride, to be a peace officer. Even though some may complain about the low pay, danger, long hours, stress, paranoia, anxiety, fatigue, effect on family life, and the heaviness on the heart, I thank the good Lord everyday for my job and ability to go home after every shift and feel like I have given back and made a difference, even if it’s just a little.

I want to encourage every law enforcement officer that no matter your current position, God has a PURPOSE for you in your life. Trust me, I know sometimes we question that purpose and we look in the mirror after that long 18 hour day and ask, “Is this really what I am supposed to be doing?” I want to tell you that law enforcement (“Front Line Warriors”) is the only barrier between good and evil that keeps peace in our communities. Edmund Burke said it best when he said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” We are and will continue to do something that will remain our PURPOSE in our lives: to bravely Serve and Protect!

“When your belief is strong and your purpose just, no obstacle can stand in your way. ”
